I'm with the Quendi

The 6th Largest Army

Well, I'm back.

I have just returned from the bastard island spawn of Tír na nÓg and Craggy Island.

Do you ever dream of mountains? Do you ever dream of jagged sea ports with rough volcanic shards rising above them? I think this might prove I read far, far too much Tolkien at an impressionable age but I cannot quite shake the feeling I had been living in a peculiar dream for the last seven days.

In the lands of the North, where the Black Rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long the Men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale...Collapse )

I don't like this:

I really don't like this. I'm pretty sure he's not actually saying "having BPD makes you just like the nazis". I'm fairly sure his point isn't really "surviving childhood abuse hard-wires you into becoming a zombie kitten killer."

Do I have to go here on a lazy sunday morning? Do I really have to go there?Collapse )

This is also at dreamwidth here For some reason DW is not playing the crosspost game.

I'm not sure whether to be cheered or terrified

Anyhow, I did that knock-over chair, give yourself a paper cut and bleed copiously over presentation job interview thing yesterday and now seem to be in a position of minor authority.

I hate authority.

The team was pleased anyway. Which means they will probably guillotine me in two months' time.

No fannishness. Boo.

Is anyone else really having trouble with Spam on LJ? As in 2-3 spamminations a day? Any ideas of what to do about it?

Heh Rebel Girl

[personal profile] green made a video to Rebel Girl! Little angry teenage Lipstick came out and raged and jumped around the room in a manner that nearly put her thirty-something host body's knees out.

I was happy in a very angry kind of way.

Which was timely and apt in all ways because prior to that I was busy being weirded out at the return of the Lipstick Death Cult Girl.

That class of 93' reunion in fullCollapse )

That New Year shame - now with pic spam

So I found a Georgie wig. It did terrible things for my intellect and moral character.

In my defence I was meant to go to a burlesque night - but it sold out. So I improvised :S

Picspam.

What; good looking, lovely wig perched on top of her head like an exceptionally attractive loaf of bread?Collapse )

I don't do redbull. I remember now all the reasons I don't do redbull. I especially don't do evil, foul, toxic, additive laden energy drinks mixed with alcoholic beverages.

Oh God...I think there was a wig. And possibly a can-can.

Happy New Year Everyone!

So in the snow I've done about the most indulgent thing a fan fic writer could ever do. I've interviewed my muses.

It's a nice jizzy pile of self wankage, and it takes the place of story notes to Railway Lands, because I just sounded silly doing that. These little buggers have been living in my head for the last three months, so I really thought I finally had to hear what they had to say for themselves.

Draco: We've invented a new potion - the psychobabbling beverage!

Lipz: Railwaylands - commentary by muses and writer, all the usual warnings for references to drugs, psychiatric dysfunction, boysexing etc. Chapters 1-4.

On authentic experience, getting naked in the West End, and ketchup in the bloodCollapse )

Second pointless post in a week

Does snow send anybody else mildly hyper?

The smell and the bizziness of it, just seeing it fall down in the streetlights.

I've always had a scatty, puppyish thing for snow.

Do children in a box worry anybody else?

Maybe it's the tooth related weirdness but I went to a junior school yesterday to a social services meet for one of my clients.

The school was a brand new build and very shiny and lovely, except it was completely surrounded by black metal mesh security fences. There were children playing in the yard, which was lovely and overlooked fields going down to a river, but the playground itself was completely surrounded by this wire mesh. Perhaps it was post dental work melodrama, but they looked like kids in a cage.

I know we need to keep kids safe, but isn't this just a little psychologically traumatising? These weren't rich or famous kids or army kids in downtown Basra, they were ordinary kids on the edge of a medium sized town.

It weirded me out anyway. Maybe it's just normal these days.
